Putin criticizes USA withdrawal from Iranian nuclear deal

"Russia calls for strict and consistent implementation of this plan", Putin stated. Putin, who has previously told Europe he had warned them about the trade threat Washington posed to them, also said that if Trump imposed new tariffs on imports of foreign cars it would have serious consequences for the global economy and especially for Europe. "As for Russia's return to the G7, G8 - we never left it", he said.

Russian Federation was expelled from the grouping in 2014 after it invaded and annexed Crimea and for its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine. Trump said on Friday that Russian Federation should have attended a Group of Seven summit in Canada over the weekend, an idea that even Moscow seemed to reject saying it was focused on other formats. I am confident that our joint efforts will continue to be aimed at further strengthening of the strategic partnership between Azerbaijan and Russian Federation in the interests of our peoples and countries, which are traditionally linked by close ties of friendship and good-neighborliness.

"We have continued our cooperation even during hard times", Kurz said after his talks with Putin on Tuesday.

Armenian President Armen Sarkissian also issued a personal message to President Vladimir Putin on the occasion of Russia Day where he delved deep into the relations between Armenians and Russians throughout history by pointing out the age-old ties of trust and mutual assistance between Russia and Armenia as a fact that he only wanted to improve. He also said the G7 countries had "again" failed to provide any evidence that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in Britain in March.

"Once again, nothing concrete was said", Putin said, referring to the G-7 statement.

Earlier Sunday, Putin criticized the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit.

Founded in 2001, the Beijing-based SCO has largely served as a vehicle for resolving border issues, fighting terrorism and - more implicitly - to counter American influence in Central Asia following its invasion of Afghanistan.

Putin says Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilize the situation" in the region.

Last month, Trump pulled out of former U.S. President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.
